Simply Brilliant!

Have been using all the Neals Yard hand creams over the years. Wouldn’t use anything else. Not sticky, lovely fragrances and absorbs well. Recommend

Great duo

Great smell, good size to keep the spray in my bag/car. Absorbs quickly so doesn’t feel greasy.

Clean Hands!

Love the convenience of this spray to keep in your bag, smells great and doesn’t dry your hands! Not used hand cream yet as still using another NYR hand cream, but I’m sure it’ll be as good as this one!

Gorgeous smell!!
